The point is not to actually give away the collection, but to appoint
someone to give it away (or sell it). There is far more flexibility
that way, and if things really go wrong, with maybe the person you
appointed vanishing or dying first, then the courts will appoint
someone when it goes thru the probate system.

A properly documented plan, even if bare bones.
